Pope Francis is shown here as he addressed the joint session of Congress this morning. I was very impressed by his message and supportive of most of what he encourages. It is apparent that his positions are based on a much longer time frame than most of our politicians . He doesn’t have to worry about getting elected; he is already there. I trust that his positions on climate change and the sustainable use of our natural resources will have a profound effect on our policy makers. He may be of help in resolving the increasing divide between the Republicans and Democrats. While many of his positions fit into the Democratic platform, the Republican Catholic policy makers have heard his positions. I think this Country and the World would be a better place if we all listened carefully to what he says.
